Growing Info

Harvesting: Gardener's Delight' are at the peak of sun-ripened deliciousness when bright red, and have a slight give when gently squeezed. Because 'Gardener's Delight' tends to crack, we recommend picking them at the "first blush" stage, when 50% of the tomatoes' color has begun to change, and ripened at room temperature without decreasing flavor or nutrition.
